HR Forms

Armagh Office

Microsoft Digital Forms are Live on EA One for the Armagh Office from Thursday 11th April 2024. This is a system change in how you currently submit your Temporary Engagement, Change of Hours, and Leavers forms to HR Services. These old forms in PDF format will now be replaced with new digital Microsoft Forms. The new digital forms are designed to speed up transaction times and make them easier to submit to HR Services.

From Thursday 11th April 2024, those of you who submit forms to the Armagh regional office will have access to the digital links and be able to submit Temporary Engagement, Change of Hours, and Leavers forms online.

The onboarding of the other four regional offices and other service areas will soon follow, and you will be notified of the commencement date for each regional office and service area in due course.

Where can I find support?

Direct support from the Armagh HR Services Team is available by contacting us on 028 9041 8006 or by emailing the Armagh office on: [email protected]

A glossary of useful terms is available for reference on this page below should you need to use them.

We have also included a New Employee Data Capture form.  You may find this a useful tool to gather new employee or returning employee personal information prior to commencing the completion of the digital form.  You can provide the employee with a copy for reference and/or retain a copy for your reference should you wish to do so.
